Jane Schuldiner, the mother of late Death/Control Denied frontman Chuck Schuldiner, is making available a professionally-edited video of Chuck that documents his life and music. “There was a video, professionally done, made of the different stages of Chuck's life from the beginning to the end, to be shown at Chuck's memorial on January 4th,” says Mrs. Schuldiner in a statement. “This was a wonderful testament to him and I have decided to share it with any of you who wishes to have it. There will be a donation of $25.00 for the video, which will include shipping and handling, and all proceeds will go towards Chuck's continuing expenses. I am not having it go through his bank because of the $10.00 fee they charge for each transaction. The video can be ordered from me with a $25.00 money order at my address.”
Fans interested in buying a copy can send a money order to:

Mrs. Schuldiner also recently released a statement regarding any upcoming auctions and benefits on Chuck's behalf, as well as the possibility of a new Control Denied album. In the message she asks any fans or friends that want to organize benefits or fundraisers should email her directly at email@example.com to get in touch with her attorneys Rick Muser in New York and Scott Corbett in Orlando, Florida.
“On the advice of Chuck's attorneys, any permission for benefits, auctions, or anything else pertaining to Chuck Schuldiner are to be given by Chuck's attorneys only. Any others are unauthorized and not supported by Chuck's family, and will be dealt with by these attorneys,” says Mrs. Schuldiner in the letter. “This is being done because of problems due to mishandling and confusion in the past, to protect the fans and Chuck's interest.”
“Also, nobody has permission by Chuck's family to accept donations of any sort, money or merchandise or anything else, in Chuck's name or on his behalf. These can be sent to me, Jane Schuldiner 613 East Citrus Street, Altamonte Springs, Florida 32701, as they were in the past. I have friends of Chuck's helping, and all will be appreciated and acknowledged by me.
Chuck lost his battle with pontine glioma, a rare brain tumor on December 13th. He was diagnosed two years ago with a malignant brain tumor and was battling for his life ever since. Earlier this year, Schuldiner was brought to Los Angeles to take part in a trial for a still experimental chemotherapy agent called Vincristine. Although the family was assured that the drug is virtually non-toxic in nature, the large dosage which Schuldiner received over the span of five days did indeed poison him causing residual difficulties and weakness which he has been recovering from since. Schuldiner was making progress and gaining his strength back day by day but his health took a turn for the worse in December.
